With using different varnishes and dubbing's for the flies I only had two needles so was constantly cleaning the varnish from them before using them for dubbing so with the off cuts and some piano wire I had for some stick floats I decided to fashion a couple more for myself and these were the result.
In the box with the Spalted Beech was an off cut of Olive Wood which I had a bit of fun with and turned it a bit more elaborate and this was the result.
I have been teaching the couple of students who I communicate with online the art of Fluting in a couple of forms so as always the EDIP principle I had drilled into me during my forces days always shines through...Explanation, Demonstration, Imitation & Practice. So these were my Demonstration Floats, the first floats I've had the pleasure of making since November last year.
Three Fluted Perch Bobbers with a larger style fluted float which I was asked to make for a Personal friend for Barbel.
To finish off the week I had an hour or so at the vice last night making some holographic nymphs.
